Rep. Bean Tells Newsmax: Influence Columbia University Through Financial Means

Rep. Aaron Bean, a member of the House Education and Workforce Committee, has expressed deep concern over the prevalent issue of antisemitism gripping Columbia University.

Despite the assurances provided by Columbia’s President Nemat Shafik during her recent testimony, Bean contends that actions on the ground tell a starkly different story.

Accoring to Bean, Columbia remains, a “hate-filled campus,” with incidents of antisemitism persisting despite official condemnations. Shafik’s testimony, while outwardly condemning antisemitism, seemingly fell short in addressing the ongoing challenges faced by Jewish students at Columbia.

Bean pointed out that while Shafik’s words may have sounded reassuring, they did not align with the ground realities revealing on the university campus. For instance, even as Shafik testified, a pro-Palestine protest was underway at Columbia, indicating a continued climate of tension and hostility.

The discrepancy between rhetoric and action has left Bean and others deeply troubled. Despite Shafik’s seemingly sincere condemnation of antisemitism, the failure to effectively address and curtail such incidents raises questions about the university’s commitment to fostering a safe and inclusive environment for all students, regardless of their background.

Bean emphasized the urgency of addressing antisemitism on college campuses, underscoring the profound impact such hatred can have on affected students.

He suggested that merely paying lip service to condemning antisemitism is insufficient and called for concrete actions to be taken to combat the problem effectively.

Bean proposed that hitting universities like Columbia “in the pocketbook” might be necessary to spur meaningful change. By leveraging the financial leverage of donors and alumni, as well as raising public awareness of the issue, pressure can be exerted on universities to prioritize the safety and well-being of their students.

Bean stressed the importance of holding universities accountable for creating and maintaining a safe and inclusive environment for all students. The ongoing incidents of antisemitism at Columbia University serve as a sobering reminder of the work that still needs to be done to eradicate hatred and discrimination from educational institutions.
